2009 History Meets the Arts festival begins today in Gettysburg

Gettysburg again this year plays host to dozens of nationally known artists and sculptors during the annual History Meets the Arts 2009 spring festival. There are many wine and cheese receptions to mark these personal appearances, and artists will be glad to sign their prints and collectibles. Several well known Civil War artists will be on hand, including York County’s very own Bradley Schmehl, whose excellent painting “Columbia Bridge Burning” graces the cover of my recently released book Flames Beyond Gettysburg: The Gordon Expedition.
A full schedule of events and guest appearances can be found on the organization’s website.
